  • Algorithms and Data Structures: Mike Swanson - Genetic Session Scheduler

    I wanna be like Mike!

    As I have said in other posts, I don't have too much experience with algorithms but I really hope I get the chance to learn about some at least. This was a very cool presentation and very, very informative in a relatively short time slot.  The explanations were clear and easily understandable.

    Hope to see more in the future.

    I wish I can go to the PDC, but I need a job first Smiley
    Keep 'em coming Charles!

  • Peter Sestoft: Inside The C5 Generic Collection Library for C# and CLI

    This is really cool stuff. It makes me wish I can go back to school and just stay there. However, some of it is probably over my head at this time because I was not a CS major, so I never took any classes in Data Structures or Algorithms. Whatever little I know is just what I picked up from learning programming and its not a whole lot.

    However, that aside, those guys at Copenhagen has some interesting ideas and I hope to check out c5 once I get through F#! Excellent work all around.

  • Erik Meijer, Gilad Bracha, Mads Torgersen: Perspectives on Programming Language Design and Evolution

    I have finally had a chance to see this video. Given some comments, I expected that it would not be good at all but to me, Gilad is damn funny. He is sarcastic in a subtle way - my kind of guy and then throw erik in there, and well its a comedy club for nerds by nerds. Respect all around, I wish I could work with any of those guys. They are some of the best out there and I enjoyed this very much. I hope to learn whatever I can about Newspeak and as soon as I am done F#, I am going to hit Haskell and Erlang. Also thanks to Erik and Beckman, it seems I need to learn VB as well. But I have at least one trait as those guys - I love to learn. Time for some more coffee...
  • C# 4.0: Meet the Design Team

    Charles, that is a good point about libraries vs. language constructs.  I assume that we are still a little ways from C#4.0 and in the mean time, the TPL library is being consumed and improved. Given that Joe Duffy and Anders seem to talk all the time, then it seems that the TPL library will provide a good test bed for parallelism, which, if successful, can be implemented in the next c# version. I mean the framework exists and not just for c# but LINQ as well. Anyway, just my 2.5 cents.
  • C# 4.0: Meet the Design Team

    It's the anticipation that is killing me!
    Excellent stuff - I have say, I enjoy Anders, E Meijer and the PFX team interviews. I hope to see more of F# folks in the near future. I wish I can work with these any of these groups - they do such cool stuff.
  • C# 4.0: Meet the Design Team

    To either Borum.NET or Charles: I have recoded this vid to h.264 mkv and the file is now only 355mb. I do not have ftp (but could set one up in a few days - need to reinstall  win...) but if anyone wants the mkv version of this file I will be more than happy to upload it to you, even through IM if need be.

    Now, I am off to go watch this.
    Great work getting these vids up - thanks a lot.

  • IE Team to Mozilla: Congratulations!

    hmmm the 3d 'e' cake - cause u know cake just sucks if it isn't 3d
    so far ff3 is pure sugary sweetness  - but in all fairness, the ie team is still trying to improve the browser
    I think one of the guys at ff suggest trading some ideas - who knows, that may be the sweet future
  • Doug Seven: Visual Studio Team System 2008 and Rosario

    The next release will be fully loaded.
    Not sure where this belongs, but here is something I'd like to see added:  Code to HTML or something of the sort. I am trying to use Google Blogger with LiveWriter and so far, I can't get VS code to any article. I used both Insert Code Snippet and Insert from VS plugins but it still looks horrible on Blogger (the lines look like they are 1.5x spaced or something). It is seriously holding me up from posting stuff.

    So basically, a VS tool to port code either to LW or to file (like in VS2003) would be nice!
  • Don Syme: Introduction to F#, Part 2

    Actually user Geek1ab from Part 1 had links to both videos. From his post:
